“Katniss… there is no District 12”
WARNING: Spoilage ahead
Ok so I recently finished the succeeding sequel in The Hunger Games book series. All I can say is wow. My words are beyond reason, I cant explain it with any sophisticated word but just wow or jaw drops. The first chapters seems to be calming and more of a bore but once you get to the arising problem and then to the climax the fun starts.
Well, my predictions were wrong on the book because I thought Katniss Everdeen will be a mentor and alongside Peeta Melark, they will be mentoring 4 tributes aged between 12-18 for the 75th anniversary of the Hunger Games and the third Quarter Quell. Well, this time, Katniss and Peeta will be back in the dreadful arena one more time. Another twist which President Snow must have concocted or was it already in papers since archaic times, I dont know.
SPOILER ALERT. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.
A regular Quarter Quell will be two times exciting and twice gory since every District has to send twice the amount of tributes. That means 4 every district, two males and two females. That will make 48 tributes. Since its the third Quarter Quell, the Capitol added a twist… Victors from the recent hunger games will fend off with each other instead.
New characters are introduced this time around. Some in District 12 and a handful of Victors from different Districts. Here is a list on what I, or we should expect on the upcoming installment.
- The mockingjay pin, or the mockingjay symbol will be very precious.
- Madge, doubtfully, will have her debut, or at least decent screentime.
- The peacekeepers in District 12 will have their debut, namely Darius, Cray and that woman peacekeeper *forgot her name*
- A threat named “Thread” will ignite your hearts in fury.
- Somehow, a debut of the Jabberjay.
- New characters Bonnie and Twill from District 8.
- Katniss forming alliances in the Arena.
- We finally get to see how Haymitch won.
- Maysilee Donner’s tragedy.
- Have fun thinking out the New Arena’s design if you havent read the book yet.
- Somehow, a glimpse of every district especially Rue and Thresh’s family.
- The cruelty of the capitol.
- The rebellion and uprisings.
- Katniss’ interview dress.
- Undeserving deaths from the victors.
- A cameo for District 13
- The ending, the most valuable, I wont say a word since this will be a big spoiler, so Ill save it.
Ill also mention some new characters, the victors, to be specific
- Cashmere and Gloss (Distric 1)
- Brutus and Enobaria (District 2)
- Beetee and Wiress (District 3)
- Finnick and Mags (District 4)

- Two Morphlings. (District 6)
- Johanna and his partner *also forgot his name* (District 7)
- Unknown (District 8)

please correct me if Im wrong or forgot the victor’s name. thanks!
I sunk my teeth into the books. No, I didnt chew it. I was so into the book its like I was watching the movie itself! The emotions even hit me like Katniss’ arrows. Reading through the book, the climax in particular I was feeling so uneasy. I begin to stare blankly, walk back and forth in the room, I was sweating cold sweat, my skin getting clammy, my mind getting restless. I pause on every turn of a page – I was digesting, ever so slowly, the words Katniss has been feeding to me. There are times I laugh, especially when Johanna strikes the statement: “Yes, Tick Tock, nuts is in shock” I dont know really, I laughed hysterically, maybe Im getting insane? no, not really.
The book emanates the light of Rebellion on the 12 different districts in Panem, with Katniss as the Mockingjay, the one that defied and outsmarted the limited wits of the Capitol. It also focuses on how the Capitol took everything from Katniss, Prim, Cinna, Gale, her mother, District 12, the Hob eveything, which in turn might revive the Dark Days in Panem. Probably the lesson from the book is that trust, and doubt, even in small quantities can become a steadfast pillar whether your life will be spared or ended. One must know who the real enemy is.
Another wonderful book! This is kind of better than the first one, in my humble opinion. Cant wait to finish the trilogy with the last book Mocking Jay. Although, everything’s pretty fast, hopefully, this installment will have an equal or more good successor.
Who has read the book? 🙂
See you all in the next post!
